If I have a warrant for my arrest in FL I plan on leaving the US (with my EU passport), wil I be redflagged leaving the airport?

Asked about 1 year ago - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I understand the problem will arise when I will be re-entering the country (instantly ICE or TSA will see that there was a past problem not handled). However, at this moment, could I leave the airport and hence leave the US. I concurrently have a pending case in FL as well.

    Answered . The airport and DMV are sure places to be flagged for a warrant. As an officer of the court, I can only tell you to turn yourself in. You do have legal options that I'd like to discuss with you further. Depending on what the warrant is for, we can sometimes get them recalled. Call me for free consult.

    Answered . If you have a pending case in FL, you must comply with all the orders of the court. Sounds like you are about to become a fugitive. This is a big mistake.

    Answered . I agree that your warrant will come up at the airport. You should retain an attorney to assist you in making plans to turn yourself in. By doing so, you can exert some control over the circumstances of your arrest on the charge rather than being surprised.

I offer a free consultation and case review. Thanks
